The S.W.Sea wreck
Near the road, just north of the Ugab River, this is clearly signposted and very easy to visit. It is one of the coast's most convenient wrecks (for the visitors, not the sailors), so if you're looking for a picnic stop, it is ideal. The ship itself was a small vessel that ran aground in 1976.
Imagining the Skeleton Coast, most people think that it's littered with dozens of picturesque wrecks – but that's really no longer the case. Shipwrecks do gradually disintegrate. They're pounded by the waves, corroded by the salt water, and eventually what's left of them washes out to sea or vanishes into the sands. Further, modern navigation techniques, using accurate charts and, most recently, GPS receivers have greatly reduced the accident rate on this coast. Thus whilst a few decades ago the coast probably was littered with wrecks, now they're few and far between – so take advantage to wander down to this one whilst you can!
